    Re: Open Invitation to Vegas

    Can I have the 400 people's worth of alcohol to myself?

    Start pouring and I'll be there in about 6 hours plus the time to order the 1-way plane ticket.

    I just patented snakes. You can't make a game with snakes in until 2085. Sowwy.
  3. Re: I think I'm about to have a nervous breakdown

    Have you tried making a snake game? I hear those are popular with the trendy crowd.

    Re: Getting Started

    C++ is a super-set of C. C code will compile correctly in a C++ compiler.

    Alternatively, get yourself a linux box (or a virtual) and just use the standard C compiler you get with it (GCC).
